WILUAM A. CLARK OF
JACKSON SPRINGS PASSES
William A. Clark died on March
7 and was buried from the Presbyter-
lon Church at Jackson Springs, of
which he had been a lifelong mem
ber and officer. His pastor, the Rev.
R. G. Matheson, officiated.
Coming from a long line of Scot
tish ancestry, he inherited in a large
measure the keen intelligence, integ
rity and honesty of that race which
has given so many leaders to church
and state. His parents were the late
John B. Clark and Margaret McNaid
Clark. On the Clark side the line in
I America went back to Kenneth Clark,
I who came from Scotland about 1760,
^ and Parian McFarland, who came
from Scotland at the age of 14 with
his father John about 1772. Parian
McFarland’s wife was Flora McKay,
a daughter of Alexander McKay, a
delegate to the Provisional Congress
On his mother’s side the line in
America went back to Neil McNair
and Farguar McAuley, both of whom
came probably about the same time
as the other Scotch settlers. This side
‘ gave several preachers and doctors
to the county.
Mr. Clark was a man to whom
many turned for advice and counsel.
Even in his early boyhood he was
called on to help his uncle and aunts
who had been left in straitened cir
cumstances after the war between
the states, to his fatherless niece and
nephews, and to his own younger
brothers and sisters he was brother,
father, counsellor and friend. Mr.
Clark was a bachelor and leaves two
brothers, G. McA. and J. M. Clark.
I and four sisters. Misses Mary, Eva
and Margaret Clark of Jackson
Springs and Mrs. J. F. Meacham of
As a Christian Mr. Clark was an
outstanding man for many years.
He had been secretary of the Board
of Deacons of the Presbyterian
church. His work gave him a posi
tion of high responsibility and great
usefulness. When suggestion was
made as it frequently was that he be
made a ruling elder he discouraged
the idea .because he was already fill
ing a useful place. This memory on
the part of his pastor and brethem
in the church will be cherished in
gratitude and appreciation of a man
who was true to his trust as a citi-
zan, neighbor and churchman.
